I have the activation error and found a workaround for me.
Please give it a try, and post youre experiences here.
- It will not work with any firewall installed, exept the Windows build in firewall.
- You have to reset the Windows firewall (most times 2x I don´t now why but it is important). The bad thing is that you will lost all firewall settings and you have to do this after every new boot of your computer.
- Important: deactivation of the whole windows firewall does not work!
- Try the game. For me it works since 1 week; tried it every day. But don´t forget: You have to do it every time when the game don’t start.
I tried to figure out which settings in the Firewall are the bad ones, but i can´t find it. Perhaps has anyone more time and success and post it here.
I hope it´s helpfull and sorry for my english, I’am not a native english speaker.
P.S.: you can reset the firewall at: Windows security → Firewall and networksettings → restore standard for firewall (at the bottom)
(As I use the german win10, i tried to translate it. So the menues you have to go could have a little different names. Sorry for that)
